With Bruce Davidson
of Concerned Walkerton Citizens

Myriad Centre for the Arts
Located in the Old Perth Shoe Factory
Corner of North Street and Sherbrooke St. E.
The Walkerton water tragedy -- could it happen here? No, we don't think so, but then the people of Walkerton didn't think so either.
As part of our Perspectives on Water Series, the Friends of the Tay Watershed are pleased to present Bruce Davidson of the Concerned Citizens of Walkerton speaking about the tragedy that shocked Canada and led to the Clean Water Act.
Bruce will deliver a unique and personal perspective of the Walkerton Water Tragedy and its consequences from the point of view of affected citizens of the town of 5,000 people. This one hour seminar provides audiences with an undeniable example of the devastation that can occur when we collectively fail to protect our drinking water. Bruce will touch on the consequences of failing to protect drinking water from source to tap including economic, health and social ramifications.
Please join us, and start your week off right.
